By Kal on Aug. 27 2003
Format: Mass Market Paperback
It was fairly well written. The plot is about a woman who is a substitute for the spanish teacher with the ability to read other's surface thoughts (like Ryan, from Smallville episodes "Stray" and "Ryan") but when she comes in contact with another and meteor rocks simultaniously, she cannot control it and blurts out the thoughts word for word in a seizure. The ending is predictable, but it doesn't really harm the story. I preferred this series over the longer novels until recently when i realized that these are just plain too short. This book could probably take up one (barely, anyway) episode length. And the other series has enough description and story to make Smallville: The Movie, if the series didn't follow the "freak of the week" routine from Season one. This young adult series had only attracted me previously because of superb authors Cherie Bennett and Jeff Gottesfield who showed what Clark's purpose is: to defend and help, in Smallville 3, Flight. Suzan Colon is also getting there, but just not within reach. And the other series is basically authors coming in and trying their hand at writing Smallville without having to worry about the pressures of writing episodes. To summarize, this book is average.

a young and pretty substitute teacher comes to town for the spanish class and automatically all the guys are in love with her. she was caught out in the meteor shower 12 years ago and it left her with the ability to read people's mind. clark falls head over heels in love but is jealous when his friend lex starts dating her. they have a few heated words and they wonder if their friendship is worth more than a pretty woman. it is not one of the better smallville series but it will do to pass a few
hours.

I just finished reading this book and it was great. It is definitely written from a female prospective which is excellent. The book is basically about a a beautiful young Spanish teacher that all the boys in Smallville have a total crush on. She was nearly killed in the meterior shower 12 years ago and as a result, she can now read other people minds. She read Pete's, Clark's, and Lex's mind which sort of freaked them out. Clark falls for her only to have her start dating Lex. He becomes jealous and picks a fight with Lex that resulted in Clark getting into a small fix involving a mud hole (which was totally funny). Any how, Clark must eventually swallow his pride and make amends with Lex and at the same time, not let the new teacher learn his secret.

Interesting premise, poor execution Jan. 28 2005
By Phoebe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was the first Smallville book I'd picked up and I instantly realized what people meant about the series seemingly being designed for ten-year-olds. But more than that was lacking in this doozy of a novel. The characters are off, the writing's juvenile and unimaginative, and the overall story just... SUCKS! Take my advice on this, skip this one and pick up 'Dragon'. That books not perfect either, but at least the plot will restore your faith in the series.

Pretty Bad, Wishful Thinking Dec 20 2004
By Kristy Howard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
One of the few disappointing stories in the Smallville Series for Young Adults, Buried Secrets introduces a new Spanish teacher who can read people's minds. She has this ability, but hates using it, and doesn't do anything spectacular with it that warrants it as a freak-of-a-week episode. Clark and Lex falls for this Spanish teacher (although there is nothing really amazing like special powers through kryptonite to get everyone to fall for her), and have Clark (who is hopelessly in love with Lana) fall for her is unbelievable. Having built up Clark's strength of character to have him go after his Spanish teacher, despite the way he feels about Lana, is unbelievable. He even gets into a fighting jealous rage when Lex falls for the Spanish teacher, too. Anyone who has watched Smallville, even for one season, knows this is nonsense.

This was not one of Smallville's best books. I'll start with the one that was most annoying; the timeline. Where the crap are we in the seasons?

I'll set this timeline out for you:

Season 1: Twelve years since the meteor shower hit. Clark and Lana were three at the time, Lex was nine. This would make Clark and Lana fifteen and Lex twenty-one.
Season 2: Whitney is in the military. Pete finds out about Clark's secret.
Season 4: Pete isn't in the show anymore, leaving after he decides hiding Clark's secret it too much. Lex is now twenty-four.

Things above that are in the book: Meteor shower hit twelve years ago; Clark and Lana are fifteen; Whitney is in the military; Lex is twenty-four.

Hm... how on earth did that work out? So we're in season 1, 2, and 4 all at the same time? And what happened to season 3, it wasn't important enough to be included? I'm thinking they should have either gotten someone who actually knows the show or someone to help the person who doesn't know the show.

The most annoying thing, though, is all the Lana blabber. We get it, you're jealous of Whitney! You want Lana, though no one in their right mind knows why. We don't need to have you yearning for her for 60 freakin' pages.

Then you think it's finally going to get interesting, what with the Lana crap behind you, but no such luck. He's gotten past Lana just to move onto another unattainable woman. Ms. Sanchez, the beautiful Spanish woman. She was actually pretty interesting for a side character, which usually has no personality except "this guy was mean" or "this girl was kind." She had a nice personality but not over-the-top nice and an interesting background. Unfortunately, that couldn't change the whole outcome of the book; a good fast read for Smallville fans, but nothing more.

Review also on Goodreads.
